2018 Aragon Moto3 FP2 Result: The Beast Tops The List

Under the hot Spanish sun, it was an Italian stealing the show at the checkered flag, Enea Bastianini showing good speed to top the session by two tenths of a second. Several opponents tried to depose him but the Leopard rider bounced right back to keep top position. Gabriel Rodrigo was an early leader of FP2 but ended the day second best, with Nicolo Bulega sneaking back into the top three on his final flying lap.

Jorge Martin also gave it a good go to grab top stop on the last lap but lost time in the final sector and settled for fourth. Niccolo Antonelli was fifth, half a second off the leader and marginally ahead of Aron Canet. Misano victor Lorenzo Dalla Porta could not match his leading teammate but found some speed of his own to climb into seventh position.

Kazuki Masaki secured another top eight place, while Marco Bezzecchi could not improve in the final time attack and was demoted to ninth. John McPhee made an appearance inside the top ten to the expense of Jaume Masia, Philipp Oettl and Fabio Di Giannantonio. FP1 leader Jakub Kornfeil was back on track after seeing the doctor in between sessions but the obvious discomfort hindered his progress beyond 15th position.
